As I am the chauffeur and often driving all day long, Chris is the camera and PR man, but it seems he finds it easier to post to his Facebook page than it is to post here so I had better catch up a bit….
Lone Pine, where we stayed on Saturday night, is in a long dry valley in California. It’s main claim to fame seems to be that many of the early Westerns were filmed there with actors such as Gene Autry, Clark Gable, John Wayne–a few films– but all of The Lone Ranger series! More recently Gladiator seems to be the only title that I recognised….
Miles of Naff all in places and the roads as straight as an arrow…
Down from the Sierra Nevada mountains to a dessert..
Then over the next mountain range
StovePipe Wells, great name, tiny layby/stop just before Death Valley.
And it is at Sea Level !
Gas guzzler, 10 mpg I worked out yesterday; they don’t tell you that at the rental company.
More miles of naff-all. One bit was 16 miles straight before we, joyfully, came to a bend.
Dessert and mountain at Stovepipe Wells
Next restoration project? Only slight surface rust as well…
